of these events. you are looking at thousands, tens of thousands of people at these events. michelle obama was here recently. she filled the auditorium. some candidates generate high levels of enthusiasm. think about sarah palin. she had a rally in fairfax four years ago. it was an energetic and a powerful rally in terms of people getting excited for her. host: jim from massachusetts. caller: i think basically the election it is useless. i see it all around the world. all these leaders will collapse all the world economy to start the world bank for the new world order. both of these candidates, all they do is play on everybody's ults. the supreme court made a bad decision. host: next up from hampton, virginia. we have a special line. tepper, go ahead -- debra. caller: i want to make a common about what i have observed to be the current state in virginia. we're all better off than we were four years ago and i will be supporting president obama. i want to make a comment about our governor. it is different from our previous republican governors. democrats and republicans have been able to sup
6. thank you. [applause] >> please welcome the >> that is barack " obama and michelle obama's story. my father was a construction worker. he built our highways. my mother arrived in this country as a newlywed with no money, and no family. together, they realized the dream of sending their four children to college. the american dream. in any language, that is what this election is about. we need president obama for four more years to keep that dream alive. when president obama was elected, the american dream was on life-support. the middle class was being hauled out. we cannot afford to go back to the failed policies of the past. maybe governor romney has forgotten how he got into the mess that president obama faced. we have not. two wars, tax breaks for the wealthiest, the wall street bailout, katrina. nearly 9 million americans lost their jobs because of the great recession. our teachers, firefighters, and police officers were laid off, and our small businesses could not get the bail out banks to offer them any credit. how many construction workers like my father do you think the d

to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. myan't imagine watching husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? i think that they are thinking it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a man at the helm tamp they don't her down too much. -- because she is so human, i hope they don't tamp her down too much. she is looking right at you, our eyes are
is one that i will not spend as much time saying it is not fair for you to report obama is ahead. i would more likely say to you that one of the reasons obama is ahead in these polls is because the news media is asking him questions about tucking michele in at night instead of asking questions about why his administration is bumbling security in libya -- questions about tucking michelle in at night. we have news media celebrating obama as some sort of celebrity instead of treating him like the president of united states. host: back to the phones and our conversation with tim graham, director of media analysis at the media research center. you are on the "washington journal." caller: i just would like to impress on the people who are listening to this to educate yourselves, please. this man and fox news run a manipulative, mind-control tactic, and that is why there is almost nothing truthful that comes from fox news. host: how is the reporting that comes from fox news different than the reporting that comes from cnn or msnbc? caller: it is another tactic. host: by whom? caller: by you. you
friend barack obama. no one could tell it as well or as eloquently as michele. as you did a monday night. but i know him. tuesday obvious, i know him from a different perspective. i want to show you the character of leader that had what it cut when the american people who literally still had on the brink of a new depression. a leader that had what it takes to lead us over the next four years to a future as great as our people. i want to take you inside the white house to see the president as i see him every day. because i don't see him in sound bites. i walk 30 paces down the hall into the oval office and i see him and watch him in action. four years ago, the middle class was already losing ground. and then, the bottom fell out. the financial crisis hit like a sledgehammer. all the people i grew up with. you remember the headlines. you saw some of them in the previews. highest job losses in 60 years. the economy on the brink. markets, it worldwide. from the very moment president obama sat behind the desk, resolute in the oval office, he knew he had not only to restore the confidence of a
her happy. -- michelle in there for another four years to keep her happy. it looks like obama will be reelected in we will have to work 20% on currency, and that will adjust things immediately. it will set the world on its fanny for a while. host: lower the currency 20%. what do you make of that? guest: there are two currency questions here. we a long alleged china is manipulating its currency. i think the calller might have been referring to recent actions by the fed. could that affect on u.s. currency? i would rather not touch that, because it is not something i am an expert on. there are plenty of qualified people that are more inept at speaking to that. i will speak to my first point, the point that they can have their cake and eat it, too. i think what the calller is referring to is something that president obama and mitt romney both agree on, republicans and democrats both agree on is since china has joined the wto, it has not lived up to all of the rules. that is bipartisan consensus. that is why their books on china that is why they say i will make sure they live up to
, it is a little self selective in terms of what we look at. between obama and romney, and they are both in the two range. michele bachmann -- i do not know what it necessarily tells you, but it is sort of a fun thing to look at. it does provide you links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for the candidates. >> excuse me. >> good morning. david, george mason university. i think we have seen in the campaign so far that both candidates are in the position of being challenged. flip-plopped positions. i have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it imperatively." instead, it was something
of the economy and our so-called president that is taking care of us and obviously he just wants michelle in there for another four years and keep her happy. any way, over here, the economy and looks like mr. obama is going to be re-elected and we are going to have to lower 20% on currency and that would adjust things immediately and of course will set the world on its fanny for a while but that's the realism of it. host: lower our currency 20%, what do you make of that? guest: i think the caller, there are two currency questions here. we have long alleged that china is manipulating its currency and the caller is talking about actions announced by the fed. i would not touch on that because i'm not an expert on. more quality people can speak to that. i will speak to the first point, china and the w.t.o. can have its cake and eat it, too. i think what the caller is talking about is something that president obama and mitt romney both agree on, republicans and democrats both agree, if china joined the w.t.o., it has not lived up to all the w.t.o. rules. that is something that has bipartisan c
that in this world you need to be engaged and he is engaged smartly. >> ok. next, i want to introduce michelle. she served as undersecretary of defense for policy from february 2009 to february of this year. prior to her confirmation, she helped lead president obama's transition team at the department of defense. in 2007, she co-founded the organization that doug just referred to. the non-partisan think tank, center for a new american security. republican states like virginia, notably, are using the intended sequesters up against their democratic opponents, even though the republicans were part of the deal. i want to ask you, how serious should we take this and is there anything democrats can do in response? >> i think we do have to be worried about the prospect of sequestration not only because it would impose additional cuts across the board, but to the mindless way in which the cuts would be imposed. it is across the board cuts. no opportunity to protect priorities. choose for your point to except. -- choose where you are going to accept. it would be devastated across the board. we do have to re
looked at. for both mitt romney and obama, they are both in the 2% range. there is not much difference. for the republican primary candidates, there were some that were higher than others. michelle bachmann, i think, had the highest. >> we had a self-imposed michelle bachmann " at some point during the debates. -- michelle bachmann quota during the debates. >> but again, i do not know what it tells you. it does provide something interesting to look at. it does provide links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for all of the presidential candidates. >> george mason university. i think we have seen both candidates in a vulnerable position of being challenged on flip-flops' of position or permanence not kept. i have noticed so far that the tendency of both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, is to not attempt to say, well, the facts have changed. the facts are different. the fact that i look at now are not the fact that existed when that was my belief. instead, there are various levels of equivocation and bluff. one rec
?" our debt past 100.3% of gdp. you have obama saying "opa!" i love this drying because it turned out perfectly. this is the tea party. this little girl looks like sarah palin. she is saying "during get!" -- "drink it!" michele bock men had just won the iowa straw vote-vote- michele bachmann had just won iowa sraw vote. it says "what did i do last week and?" "led the honeymoon commence." it is fun to have this levy elephant. this is one thing that drives me nuts. bloomberg and the city council voted that he was right and they outlawed big drinks. you have bloomberg floating down as mary compensating "drop it, chubs!" this is when donald trump endorsed mitt romney. he is saying "you had me at i don't care about poor pepole." "we must consider deep cuts to the $70 billion green defense budget." "and it was working so well." "strike the solar panels." this primary season was one of the most interesting because they did not want mitt romney. did they want to rick santorum? really? "something like this could make a lesser fella question his inevitability." this was the front-runner, mitt.
